Associations are unique entities, relying primarily on membership subscriptions and sponsorship. The challenge is to find new ways to generate revenue. Offering tangible benefits to a loyal member base can increase retention and enhance the value of membership; offering web-based solutions that systematically make better business decisions can attract a younger generation of subscribers.
Based on FuseTalk, web-accessible FuseDiligence combines subject matter expertise, collaborative capabilities, data partnering and solutions plugins to allow the creation of customized models which can be used time and again by members. An easy to use, flexible business improvement system allows better business decision making by turning knowledge into action.
Associations can increase membership retention, provide new revenue enhancing, collaborative capabilities and, essentially, improve the success and satisfaction of their members.
"With the overwhelming number of choices that business folks and other professionals and experts have before them in terms of networking, member based communities and groups, it has become difficult for the traditional association to retain, let alone attract members," says Greg Waite, CEO of FuseTalk. "With FuseDiligence, associations can provide members with a low cost way to bring value to their respective clients and workplaces. Basically, they need to turn up the value proposition to their membership, and nothing can top the value of making members more effective and providing them with new opportunities in their workplace or consulting practices."
